Live for Steel (EP)
Released: 2009, Ground Zero Entertainment
Reviewer: Luxi Lahtinen
A young Canadian thrash metal act, Riotor, and Omaha-based label Ground Zero Entertainment, agreed to do something special for the fans of this madly raging thrashers from Quebéc, Canada. This 3-song 3” MCD - limited to 999 copies, contains 3 live songs from Riotor´s gig, recorded in Quebéc City, Canada on March 7th last year. These live songs actually bring out these fellows´ pure and raw live energy really well, these Canadian thrashers sounding like a wildly thrashing bunch onstage – and just lotsa fun indeed. “Poser Hunt” starts off like one familiar Death song (just go and find it out yourself!), which they have obviously done on purpose for this track. All the three songs on this special disc really kick a fair amount of ass for what they are: Raw, aggressive blackened thrash that also seems to be one of the most popular styles for many people into metal these days. The sound quality of these 3 live songs, is on a decent level too, so it makes people even happier for investing their money into this little goodie.
For the most die-hard collectors of the band (or, just for metal collectors), there´s also a very limited wooden box set available for this (limited to 55 hand-numbered copies only – probably sold out by now), including besides the shaped 3” MCD, also exclusive Riotor T-shirt made available only for this box set, logo pin, embroidered patch, sticker, band photo and even a black-and-white gig flyer from the gig this MCD has been recorded from. Hope you were fast enough to get yours. I got mine anyway.
